Blumarine Fall 2016 RTW Line Unveils Sensual Lace and Rich Furs

The first thing that caught our attention from the Blumarine fall 2016 fashion show today was the hair on the models sent onto the catwalk, along with those gorgeous fur coats and bright hued shoes. It was the braids, the side part and messy tendril framing the face that made the ladies appear like they just got out of a warrior’s battle and immediately put on something stylish. That was the first look we saw, which was followed by some rather intriguing designs. Loose hair, side combed and left natural was in. Some even had hairclips on.

Blumarine Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 RTW - Milan Fashion Week

Blumarine might not be the top house on the fashion radar, but it certainly does have a lot of class and one can be sure that if you want a brash and brainy combination, Blumarine’s your label of choice.

There was a lot of transparency happening throughout the Blumarine fall/winter 2016-2017 collection, but also many different genres entering the stage as one lady walked down in a metallic shimmering mini hemmed dress, the skirts swishing about, followed by one in a midi skirt, sheer blouse and pom-poms hanging from the ears. The looks were exotic but yet close to home, quite trendy but rather unique to stand on their own. Pink was a pretty common color used, as well as shiny chrome and shades of teal.

Lurex was used often enough, on skirts especially, while that cocktail dress in brown and deep sea blue leopard print was pretty much what we would have expected from the wonders of Blumarine designs. There was even a lurex tiered plisse mid-length dress in green with a bib front that is made of ruffles, while it was beyond perfect to see the sway of the cinched waist grey coat with the skirt that included a slit up the side. It was beautiful and the effects positively breathtaking.

There was an overload of floral print usage at some points, particularly on brocade dresses that from time to time were also fringed with fur, while the leopard capelet was a rather satisfying find among the mix. Worn over a floral pantsuit, it looked even more superb.

We loved seeing the blended wool dresses, especially since this is a fall and winter season ready-to-wear collection, while we know that the use of paillettes only made the Milan Fashion Week show appear all the richer. Cashmere tights are also a steal from Blumarine, for those things are beyond comfortable to wear out, while still managing to keep very warm.

T-shirts, fur hoods, sheer cocktail dresses with strategically placed opacity, pantsuits, jackets, Swarovski crystals and so much more made this collection a rather intriguing one. It could definitely have been a little better, but there is little that can be said in terms of criticism here, especially with those powder pink handbags all over and the fun, light hued shoes worn throughout.
